Pleased to announce that my novella, Heads I Win, was short-listed in Quattro Books Ken Klonsky's 2014 Novella Contest. Originally a longish short story, written 20 years ago and shelved after a few rejections. Expanded word count from 8900 words to 20,214 words. A challenge to see if I could do it...
